Some interesting moves by the PGA to accommodate for the Olympics (Mid August).  John Deere Classic kinda getting the shaft being played the same weekend as the olympics, and only 1 week between The Open Championship and PGA Championship.

Notable Dates:

-Masters----------Apr 7-10

-Players-----------May 12-15

-US Open--------June 16-19

-Open Champ--July 14-17

-PGA Champ---July 28-31

-Olympics--------Aug 11-14

-Ryder Cup------Sept 30-Oct 2

Humblebrag alert :  I'll be attending the FedEx St.Jude Classic in Memphis and The US Open at Oakmont back-to-back weekends :beer:

How many players will each country have representing them for golf?  Or in particular, USA.  It will certainly dilute some fields, but how bad?  Surely though those top players who plan to compete in the Olympics will be skipping a lot of smaller events because there are so many high profile events clumped together.

As for Jordan Spieth not defending John Deere, that is a shame.  John Deere is always one of my favorite events to watch.

The Olympics, if it was to be held this year, would include:

McIlroy and Lowry (Ire), Spieth, Johnson, Watson, Furyk (USA), Day and Scott (Aus), Rose and Willett (GB), Matsuyama and Iwata (Jap), Stenson and Lingmerth (Swe), Garcia and Jiminez (Spa), Oosthuizen and Grace (Saf), Kaymer and Siem( Ger), Delaet and Hearn (Can), An and Bae (Lor), Aphibarnrat and Jaidee (Tha), Dubuisson and Levy (Fra), Kjeldsen and Bjorn (Dan), Lee and Fox (NZ), Grillo and Cabrera (Arg), Luiten (Ned), Lahiri (Ind), Illonen (Fin), de Jonge (Zim), Haotang (Chi), Zanotti  (Par) ... and that's the half of the field currently in the world's top 150. I'm sure the winner will cherish their medal but will anyone take it seriously? I'd rather they'd made it a 64-player matchplay event, for the novelty if nothing else.

Why wouldn't they take it seriously?  I understand they are all buddy-buddy with each other, but representing your country is always a prideful time.  I think there will be some laughs, but definitely some intense moments as well

It's a rare achievement to call yourself an Olympics Golf medalist.  You better believe they will take it seriously.

It happens once every 4 years, the window to succeed is tiny.

    • I've hit a few which I have found and they didn't impress me with anything outstanding. Other than it's designed for the budget minded golfer versus a player who wants a better performance ball. IMO, some players typically try various products, while others are set in their ways. Most better players are typically reluctant to switch ball brands under any circumstances. I'll curse at my buddy who's a Bridgestone Rep who throws the tour ball at me when we golf together. I never liked the "feel or the fact it will not stop downwind very well", but have played them and scored very well. Like they say "It's never the Indian, so it must be the arrow"  😁
    • Next time you see someone on a c*****v****e "news" program pose this question EXACTLY as you have (funny that), ask yourself why they simply pose the "question" as a "talking point" or rhetorical question. They will NEVER ask the question and then go to someone who can actually it - as people on this site can easily do. You'll just see a row of people smugly nodding their heads and smiling as if it' sa "gotcha" question. Problem is, they know that if someone was allowed to answer it, they'd be seen for what they really are. You will NEVER see famous TV  personality X say: "If a person is worried about getting COVID, and they get the vaccine, the vaccine protects them, correct?  Then why should they be concerned if I didn't get the vaccine? Here's expert Y to answer that question."
    • Mattm16... by any chance does the "16" that follows your moniker refer to your age?  If so, that could explain a lot.  I was cocky, sure of myself, hardheaded and knew much, much more than everyone who was older than me when I was 16.
    • Exactly - the notion that opinions deserve "equal time" seems pervasive.  If 99.9% of credible scientists believe something and 3% of people with no education "think" something (with nothing to back them up) they demand that their "opinion" be respected. Without any sense of irony, @mattm16 acknowledges that he "thinks" certain things but cannot justify them. He actually said the following - could there possibly be a more anit-intellectual admission? "I don't have facts to back up what I think.  I just think certain ways."  @mattm16 2021  
    • "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov
